Snip for dogs?!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone recently had their dog snipped and if so has it helped them calm down? For about the 2nd time in as many weeks my 2 year old Patterdale ran off leading to a dog hunt which I could have done without! Before anyone mentions training Iv spent hours with him and 9/10 he will come back when whistled...:sneaky2:

I have an Irish Terrier that was too easily riled by our Cocker Spaniel (sometimes the cocker looked at him the wrong way!).

Anyway, I had him snipped and it did take the 'edge' off his skinheadedness.

He still is very much an Irish - but saves the fireworks for vermin and visitors.

My granddaughter's 9 month old dalmatian cross was done last month. He will still run off to play with children,bikes,horses and apparently small wooly things in a non agressive way. He bolts after squirrels, foxes and cats. He humped his mum yesterday!

 

I have noticed no difference but have yet to try to take a bone from him, previously he would bare teeth and threaten.

He see's you as second in command then. Simple as that. Having your dog neutered doesn't mean you don't have to train em.
